- Ad -“bathbybex

April 2, 2019 | As we have been sharing in this space (read here and here and here), the FDA has been slowly charting a path toward the full legal recognition of hemp-derived CBD as a food additive and dietary supplement.

Today, marks another landmark.  After teasing such an announcement for weeks, the FDA published in the Federal Register this morning that it will be holding a public hearing on products containing cannabis or cannabis-derived products on May 31, 2019, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Read the notice here

The Roundtable will be fully represented at that hearing.

Perhaps more significantly, FDA’s outgoing Commissioner, Scott Gottlieb, issued a statement concerning the hearing and other developments on the issue. 

The statement (which can be read in full here), includes the following key excerpts:

  • As part of the public hearing and related public comment period, the agency is interested in whether there are particular safety concerns that we should be aware of as we consider the FDA’s regulatory oversight and monitoring of these products.

The Roundtable applauds the FDA’s efforts to crack down on companies that make unsubstantiated medical claims about hemp products like CBD – these bad actors do more harm to the industry and its reputation than any misguided law enforcement action.

We also are excited to hear again that the agency is committed to a regulatory framework that will ensure that hemp-derived CBD products can be marketed widely to the American public. 

We look forward to working with the FDA and congressional leaders to reach a result that ensures the full development of the hemp industry, while promoting the health and safety of all Americans.
